Random Tuesday Mutterings is the perfect place to put the random assortment of what-nots I’ve got up to in Azeroth each week.
It was a long weekend and I had no plans so it meant a lot of time on WoW. I hardly did anything on Z outside of raiding this week, though there was a lot of raiding. I think I ended up in Nighthold for 6 out of the 7 nights this week. There was the 4 nights of guild raiding, then pugging into a normal for fun and AP, and then I jumped into Toco’s guild alt run at Gul’dan as an extra healer, and then my new guild did a normal run and took some seriously undergeared alts so they really needed an extra healer. It ended up as a heck of a lot of Nighthold. Thank goodness it’s a pretty raid.
I left getting a mythic 15 dgn done right until the last-minute before reset but really nicely, Dys and some of my Deadline guildies pulled a run together to help out this evening and we did boosted a key through Court of Stars, Eye of Azshara and then into Darkheart Thicket 15 so I’ll have the cache tomorrow morning. It was really awesome running with them again. Even though I made the choice to change guilds, I really do miss a lot of my old guildies so I had a lot of fun being back on discord with them.
Besides all the Nighthold, there was a lot of time on alts. First up I finished levelling my Shaman, so she makes number 6 to max level and I’m working on finishing up her campaign.
Shaman’s have the best order hall, it’s really gorgeous and there’s so many toys you can buy from the vendor as well as the pet from the pet battle. I found a cool Shaman puzzle game in the class hall and finishing it gave me a lava toy and that was the last toy I needed to get to 300 toys. (In full disclosure I completely cheated and found a youtube guide on how to click the totems in the right order to complete the 5 rounds for the puzzle).
I’ve also had a lot of time on my priest this week as I’m starting to gear her up as a viable raiding alt. The gear isn’t the biggest issue, it’s getting enough AP to get her weapon up to at least 35. She’s actually not that far from hitting 35 on her holy weapon now (I haven’t dropped any AP into shadow/disc weapons so far) but because gathering AP takes a while, I’m back to running world quests and dungeons. She ran her first mythic plus on the weekend and I’m always trying to hit friends up to come and run dgns with me as I much prefer running them with friends.
It was fun to go run a few dgns with Toco and Wolfz. We all met when I joined their guild in Warlords for mythic raiding when Deadline was on a break. Their guild died a few months ago so they both went to Jubei-Thos to raid elsewhere. Thank goodness for bnet and cross realm as I could keep in contact with Toco. Toco and I both play healers so it’s fairly rare we get to go do dgns together. Cafa’s hiding at the back but he’s still in their orignal guild on Barthilas. I really like how WoW can feel like such a small world at times.
Now the Druid tier sets are complete, I decided to start on the priest and managed to get all the pieces for the incarnate tier as her first full set. I’m lucky I have a backup level 92 priest besides my max level one as she can help run old raids for the missing pieces.
I was really impressed to see that the developers have finally added a port back down from the Lich Kings room in ICC. I run it fairly regularly so was really surprised to see the addition when I popped up there this week. It’s probably been there for a while but I’ve manged to miss it until now.
Once you port down, there’s a portal to Dalaran as well as one to back up the top.
Z got a quest from her last Kirin Tor cache to go talk to random npcs around Dalaran. Once I talked to them they turned hostile and some into demons. I had to kill them all and as quest reward, I got Khadgar as floating head pet to follow me around!
When you talk to him, he’ll give you a random answer. I really like having Khadgar floating around over my shoulder, he’s quite adorable.
And the most exciting part of my week was getting to be a guest on Reins of Azeroth. Reins is run by my most amazing friends, Cinder and Spazz, and Sirius who does the awesome art for their show. They were talking all things blogging on their episode and had me come along to chatter too. That’s so sweet of them.
Look at the gorgeous art Sirius did! My troll looks awesome! Sirius was talking about liking drawing the leaves on her dress and they look so good. I really like my troll!! Thanks Lovely ❤
Obviously I adore Cinder to pieces, being my best friend, but I really enjoy chatting to Spazz and Sirius too. I got to meet both of them in November last year when they were down for Pax and we all went out to dinner. It was an awesome night full of wow chatter! It’s a long episode because the 3 of us sure can talk but I had a lot of fun recording with them.
Huge thanks for having me guys!
And that was my week in WoW. How was yours?
